Two Captured British Citizens, Shaun Pinner, and Aiden Aslin, both asked British Prime Minister Boris Johnson to help bring them home in exchange for detained Ukrainian opposition politician Viktor Medvedchuk.
Two British citizens who surrendered to Russian forces in Ukraine have approached the UK Prime Minister, requesting that their exchange be facilitated for detained Ukrainian opposition politician Viktor Medvedchuk.
One of those apprehended, Shaun Pinner, told Rossiya 1 that he and the other apprehended, Aiden Aslin, would like to be exchanged for Medvedchuk, and that they would be grateful for Johnson's assistance in this matter.
Pinner noted as quoted by the Russian tv that he is treated well and understands what position he is in.
In turn, Aslin stated that he believes it is critical that the UK prime minister heed the request of Medvedchuk's wife, Oksana Marchenko, to exchange them for her husband.
